The heart and soul of every dog rescue is their foster homes.  Without foster homes, we wouldn’t be able to help any dogs.  It can be one of the hardest jobs but also one of the most rewarding.
If you decide to be a foster home, you’ll be able to get to know some incredible dogs.  They’ll brighten your day, get you out exercising more and provide you with lots of cuddles in the evenings.  We aren’t going to lie – it won’t be all fun and games. There may be some house training accidents, there might be some whining on their first few nights in a crate and they may not walk all that politely on a leash when you first bring them home. 
Despite these potential issues (and more), you’ll be hard pressed not to fall in love.  Which makes the hardest part of the job saying goodbye to them when they get adopted.  It is amazing how quickly you can get attached. As cheesy as this sounds, even knowing these dogs for a few days will enhance your life and their impact will stay with you for years to come.
If you are interested in fostering for the Windy City Canine Rescue please let us know.  We have some dogs waiting to join us, but we need foster homes to care for them.  If you are interested in fostering an adult lab, or a lab pup (or any other dog), please let us know (email: info@windycityrescue.com or call: 403-359-3139).  
We promise it will be an adventure!
